    That's great news :)

    We have found our hogs to be very fussy feeders at times - particularly our male. He used to skip feeds frequently, while our female was better. They have always refused to eat out of their enclosures.

    We keep feeding records for all of our snakes; try doing this with yours, it will help you find a pattern so that you won't be so worried if your hog doesn't eat. Our male for example would often eat one week and then miss his meals for two weeks, this was a regular pattern. After cooling this year, the male has become a much more consistent feeder, while the female is missing meals, but this is likely to be due to the breeding season. We have placed them together, fingers crossed we soon have babies! :D

    Good luck with your hog for the future, I hope s/he? continues to eat well for you, and doesn't stress you out too much :D
